PAPER/LIGHT/CYCLING – SPRING/SUMMER 2013
In this collection, we focus our attention on paper garments. We created the designs by placing a moden interpretation, namely, ‘life with a bicycle’, on Japanese Washi paper, a material that has been used since ancient times for everyday clothing. We have also developed a washable paper textile with design forms and details based on our idea of bicycle riding around town.
In addition, by taking in linen, bamboo and using splashed pattern dyes, tie dyeing and other techniques, we propose highly functional clothes for people who are constantly on the move.
